So, the big news yesterday was the fact that WordPress 3.0 (codenamed “Thelonious”) was released. For me, the major milestone from this release is the fact that WordPressMU no longer exists as a separate project. Instead, WordPressMU has been merged with the standard version of WordPress, making it possible and easy for all WordPress owners to manage multiple blogs/websites from a single control panel.
This release also implements a brand new default theme that was built specifically to showcase some of the really nice new template features built into WordPress. Widget control has been improved and expanded; menus are now fully customizable from within the admin center (no more hacking theme files to get a custom menu) and more.
